Noctua has announced three new case fans as part of the A-Series, the NF-A9, NF-A8, and NF-A4x10 5V. The NF-A9 and NF-A8 are improvements on the previous NF-B9 and NF-B8 while the NF-A4x10 5V is a 5V version of the NF-A4x10. The first two fans use the latest cooling methods from Noctua including "Stepped Inlet Design, Inner Surface Microstructures and Flow Acceleration Channels." Noctua CEO Mag. Roland Mossig described the motivation behind the new NF-A4x10 saying, "Feedback on our NF-A4x10 40mm fan has been excellent, yet both end users and industry clients have asked for a 5V version. Many devices such as network or storage solutions use 5 volt 40mm fans, so with the new NF-A4x10 5V, we now have a solution for these types of applications." The fans will be available shortly at prices of $15.90 for the NF-A4x10, $17.90 for the NF-A8, and $20.90 for the NF-A9.

Author: ClayMeow


Earlier in the week, Fractal Design announced a new addition to its Core family of cases, the x3 Series. Today, the Swedish company announced a new expandable all-in-one water cooling system, the Kelvin Series. The Kelvin Series system comes in three flavors depending on your needs: T12 (120mm radiator), S24 (240mm radiator), and S36 (360mm radiator). The system comes with both a CPU block and radiator made from pure copper, which should result in some great cooling performance. What sets the Kelvin series apart from many all-in-one solutions is that it not only contains a dedicated fill port, but also allows for easy expansion with the ability to add any additional parts to the loop just as you would with a custom water cooling solution. All the parts have fully standard G 1/4" thread fittings, so users should have no issues finding compatible parts. All modern CPU sockets are supported.

The Kelvin T12 has an MSRP of US$99.99 / €74.99 / £89.99, the Kelvin S24 has an MSRP of US$119.99 / €85.99 / £104.99, and the Kelvin S36 has an MSRP of US$139.99 / €99.99 / £119.99.

Keeping our computers cool is a priority for overclockers, and to that end many manufacturers do their best to innovate new solutions. At Computex, CRYORIG has shown off its new CRYORIG H Series of coolers. These coolers use the company's new Jet Fin acceleration technology to move air out of a system faster and more efficiently and a beehive shaped front air intake to reduce turbulence, amongst other proprietary features. The H5 cooler will be available first and is 160 mm tall, with the 145 mm tall H7 coming later.

The company also showed off a new concept for case fans called the RIMS series. This series of fans is designed so that the consumer can take it apart and replace the bearings, without having to completely replace the unit. The blades could also be detached to make cleaning easier.

Some specs on the H Series coolers:

CRYORIG H5 Specifications

  • 4x 6 mm Pure Copper Heatpipes.
  • 1x XT140 140 mm Slim Profile PWM Fan With HPLN™ Bearing.
  • Patent Pending Solderless Environmental Friendly Manufacturing.

New Cooling Solution by CapTherm Announced

Category: Cooling
Posted: January 27, 2014 02:20PM
Author: Tobias Thydal

CapTherm, a company you most likely have never heard of, makes cooling solutions for datacenters, PCs, and even the military. 

Now the company is ready with a new type of CPU cooler called the MP-1120, which is a multiphase cooling solution. When CapTherm set out to design this cooler, it had to think out of the box, since copper and aluminum had been used in so many ways, and it seemed that the industry had hit a plateau. What the company did was using a technique called explosion welding to weld normally incompatible metals together, such as titanium, copper, and stainless steel, which are the components used to make the base. This however is not enough. The base is hollow and contains a non-conductive liquid, which begins to boil as the CPU heats up the base. The liquid then evaporates and travels up a 120 mm radiator. According to CapTherm, the cooler is able to run passive in most instances, but it is possible to attach a 120 mm fan to improve cooling. TweakTown claims that this cooler might offer up to ten times better performance than some of the other solutions available on the market. 

Since many PC builders like to show off their hardware, CapTherm installed a little glass window to the base and a RGB LED, so it is possible to see the liquid boil inside.

Innovation often costs money, and this cooler is no different. With an MSRP of $249, it is not a cheap cooler. However, if it lives up to the hype, it might be what you need to bring your rig to the next level. There is currently no official release date.

Evercool recently released a new laptop cooler, and now it is Cooler Master's turn. The company is known for everything from cabinets to CPU coolers to PSUs and the list goes on. Now it is time for a laptop cooler, and Cooler Master promises to keep things cool.

The SF-17 is the latest addition to the company's line of Strike Force (SF) laptop coolers, and it is based on the award winning SF-19 USB 3.0. The SF-17 is built to accommodate up to 19 inch laptops, which in turn means that a large fan is needed to keep the laptop within reasonable temperatures. Cooler Master therefore chose a 180 mm turbine fan to ensure that the laptop will keep its cool during the heat of the battle. The fan speed can be adjusted to suit the user's needs. Since the potential user can vary a lot in both size and shape, the SF-17 can be adjusted in height, so that the user can comfortably use the laptop for hours without any wrist pain. And since this laptop cooler is intended for gamers on the go, it has a handle to ease transportation.

Price and availability varies based on region, and it is unfortunately only meant for the U.S. and Canada.
